All About Me

My friend sent me this questionaire. Here's your chance to learn some nitty gritty details of my everyday life.

What time did you get up this morning? Is this typical? A
bout 6:45. It's when the damn dogs start howling to be let out of the kitchen. And then Beast starts crying as well.

What did you have for breakfast? Slim-fast. Sounds disgusting, but I've developed a taste for it.

What do you do in your spare time? Blog, read, see artsy films. Hang out with cool friends.

What is under your bed? boxes of maternity clothes. Random trash.

What do you first notice about someone?
Probably their style. And if they seem nice. And if they seem like they are engaged in the issues of the day.

Do you have/want any pets?
I have Sophia the decrepit pug, and Eliza the half beagle, half who knows, and half devil dog.

TV shows? The Office, 24, Battlestar Galactica, Damages

Indian, Thai

Not a sandwich person. I don't like condiments or vegetables on sandwiches, so with just meat and cheese, it's like, what's the point?

Junk food?

Item of clothing?
Little short sleeved jackets

Time of the day?

never thought about it

Probably summer.

Type of massage?
Wow. I'm not conversant in types of massages. What are the different types?

Hugs or kisses?
Hugs. I'm over the kissing thing.

Chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate.

Mountains or beach? Beach.

Diamonds or pearls?
Once upon a time, I would have said diamonds. But now I have blood diamond guilt.

Coke or Pepsi? Diet coke
. Or even better, Diet Dr. Pepper

Rainbow Ribbons on Sunday

Last week, church leaders released a letter that will be read on Sunday the 29th. This letter will encourage members to donate time and money to pass a CA ammendment that restricts marriage to one man and one woman.

It's a disappointing letter and hurtful to some people who would like their gay friends and family members to have the chance to marry.

So this week my friends will be wearing rainbow ribbons to church to quietly show our support for our gay friends. I'll be out of town (in Hawaii - yay!), but I'm sad I won't be there to wear a rainbow ribbon with them. This afternoon Brooke and I are going to make a bunch of rainbow ribbons to distribute to interested people. If you want one, let us know.

My Brother is Cyber Stalking Me

Yesterday, I learned that my brother Jon has not only read every post on this blog within the last couple of months, he is also now going to my other group blog and is reading every post to find my comments. My comments! Oh. My. Gosh.

Like I told him, if he gets his jollies out of cyber stalking me, he's welcome to. I just have one request. Jon, please respond to my posts online, rather than in person. That's what a blog is all about.
